  1. Willian to Chelsea

    I just don't see us being able to replace him, I don't think Mahrez or draxler are an improvement. Dembele would cost well over £90m, and is more likely to go to barca aswell. Too much for us to do with a week left in the market. Stick with willian, and hopefully barca move on to Erikson or alli.
  2. Jamie Vardy

    decent signing. Homegrown, works hard, and scores goals. Yes his pace will deteriorate, but we will still get a couple of good seasons out of him hopefully.
  3. Championship Manager 97/98

    don't suppose you have a link for 2003/04 database or thereabouts?
  4. Championship Manager 97/98

    And that's a really cool idea It was a bit of a pain to do tbh, and the drag and drop system is frustrating, but I've still put about 10 seasons into it!
  5. Claudio Marchisio

    marchisio would be a great addition. Sometimes it's better to bring in experience than potential, bayern did it with xabi alonso, juve did it with pirlo, Fergie did it with Sheringham, and mourinho has done it several times with Zlatan, Drogba, eto'o. Our squad is young, a top signing for 2 or 3 seasons would be great.
  6. Championship Manager 97/98

    love it. ive actually got cm9798 on my s7 edge through dos box. Tommy svindel larrson and morten bisgaard killing it.
  7. Welcome N’Golo Kante

    He is literally everywhere. I actually think he's getting better, which is scary.
  8. Alvaro Morata

    Can't really judge him too harshly. Costa struggled against spurs last season too, Its a tough battle when you are isolated and surrounded by alderwerald, vertongen, wanyama, and dembele. He should've put the header away, 9 times out of 10 he scores, as he is very good in air. If Willian got his head up more he would've had more to work with. Can't wait to see hazard and fabregas in the team with him.
  9. Alex Sandro

    Maybe go for felipe Anderson instead to play on the right.
  10. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    I thought he was poor in both games against juve, and while he was better against city, I thought fabinho was more impressive, didn't see the other games. ive only seen him play 4 games though, I hadn't seen enough of him to have a strong opinion. I think he will grow into a top player, espcially under conte.
  11. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    bakayoko was decent. I wasn't too impressed when see in the champions league last season, but I think he is going to be a big player for us.
  12. I had this exact same reaction. It really was an excellent presser from conte. Kept his cards close to his chest regarding tactics and Luiz, and laughed off the hyperbole the media are trying to push. When people were questioning whether we were about to repeat 15/16, I thought it was not only premature in the extreme, but the fight we showed in the second half against Burnley was proof that the players were all still pushing in same direction.
  13. Alexis Sanchez

    I think it's because of how keen the press are to push war chests and splurged, but in reality it is alot more complicated than just the fee alone. It is all a bit of a juggling act, you would hope that the wage budget has lowered significantly since 15/16, Terry, ivanovic, Mikel, Costa, matic, Oscar, all off the books. I think city were pretty clever as they have managed to lower the wages for some of their big hitters, by giving them lower wages but much bigger bonuses which don't effect ffp balance sheets. It will be interesting to see what happens with psg, if they can avoid sanctions after committing £90m a year for neymar, then ffp is dead imo.
  14. Alexis Sanchez

    Im no expert but with the way transfers are recorded, signing a £100m player, on a 5 year deal, with wages of £10m a year, would go down as £30m extra per season for 5 years. So I don't think it would be that big of a problem in terms of the balance sheet, It would be covered by the increase from £30m to £60m with the new nike deal, and that's before the new tv deal, and player sales, reduced wage budget etc.
  15. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Erikson has an unbelievable delivery. We have conceded 6 goals against spurs under conte, Erikson has scored 1 and assisted 5!
